Sunday Respite – Venice at Christmas time


For today’s respite I chose André Rieu – Les Gondoles à Venise. Beautiful sights and sounds of the holiday. The title translation appears to be Gondolas in Venice. I see no Gondolas to speak of, and it looks more to me like Vienna but since I have been to neither location I will let this up to my readers!

You may prefer to watch this in full screen, and better yet shoot this over to the smart T.V.

Wishing you a wonderful day, this second Sunday of Advent.




Sunday Respite – Little Drummer Boy


For my Sunday Respite, an original and extraordinary Scandinavian presentation of Little Drummer Boy. By all means, do watch it in full screen and better yet shoot it over to your smart T.V for a moving rendition of this classic. Wishing everyone a wonderful day, this first Sunday in Advent.


Little Drummer Boy – by students at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Trondheim, Norway


Sunday Respite – Sleigh Ride



Something to get us in the Holiday spirit for a Sunday Respite. This is Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride written back in 1948. An old stand by of mine that I like to hear right after Thanksgiving.

Wishing you a wonderful day.


Sunday Respite – The Snow Falls


Many of us had our first snow this past week, so I will end my Autumn soundscapes. I offer Paul Mauriat – Tombe La Neige for today’s Sunday Respite. Wishing you much peace today. You may prefer to watch this in full screen.


Sunday Respite – Magic autumn


I  chose “La symphonie du vide” from the album -“Quiet Life vol.2”- by David Schombert for probably my last Autumn sound scape.

November is here, and now for many the grey cloudy days set in, waiting for the rebirth of the Sun on December 21st and the beginning of longer days. We will await the celebration of the birth of the son Jesus Christ.

Wishing you a wonderful and peaceful day. You may enjoy watching this in full screen.


Sunday Respite – Beethoven’s silence


For today’s respite, I chose Beethoven’s Silence by Ernesto Cortazar. We sure need a break. Autumn is winding down here, what there was of it. Very late this year. The oaks seemed to just turn a bit brown then fall to the ground. A few beautiful Maples gives us a glimpse into the beauty of the fall colors.

Wishing you a wonderful day. You may prefer to watch the video in full screen.


Sunday Respite – Gypsy Autumn


We are starting to see some Autumn colors here, but so far it doesn’t look like we are in for a spectacular Fall. Wishing everyone a wonderful day. You may prefer watching this in full screen.

Today’s respite:

From the album  Gypsy Music From Eastern Europe,

Sergei Trofanov – Boucles D’O

I am not much for this translation, so this is my personal one!
